Jerry Mentzer has written numerous books of magic including five all cards books, the well known Card Cavalcade series. That series of books contained some of the finest new card magic of the day. CARD FILE is the largest, single collection of card magic so far by the author. 74 tricks, moves and ideas! 237 pages, profusely illustrated with clear line drawings. CARD FILE emphasizes complete effects as opposed to moves and sleights. Where moves and sleights are described, they are used in the effects described. The card magic ranges from very easy, nearly self - working tricks through the gamut of tricks requiring standard skills, to advanced magic which requires skills which will be new to most readers.
